Boating fun

Our close friends have a boat. Don’t you love friends with boats? Especially when they invite you to join them on the Swan for some biscuiting.

Homme completed the architraves around all the doors and windows in the studio this morning and then hit the computer to get back into writing his book. Kids and I went to visit a set of grandparents and left him to it. We arrived back home at lunchtime and after putting  master x to bed, miss e and I sat down to do some scrapbooking. She completed a double layout and I made three cards while being her ‘right hand girl’.

During this time we got a text invite to go boating, and were very excited as it was another steamy, hot day. Homme decided to stay put and continue writing while I headed off to the river late afternoon with three kids and a picnic in tow.

How relaxing to catch up with my girlfriend while her husband was on boat duty with all the older kids. Master x was delightful, exploring the river’s edge, meeting some black swans, caressing and chatting to a jellyfish on the shoreline, wondering at the bobbing of a tennis ball in the wake and mostly enjoying his water play with his teapot and bucket.

We got home at 8.30pm, all filed through the shower, and kids fell straight to sleep. Bliss.
